Ensuring National Government Stability After US Counterinsurgency Operations: The Critical Measure of Success

by Dallas Shaw


"Dallas Shaw has written a brilliant and insightful work that gets to the heart of counterinsurgency theory. It provides an understanding and frank critique of our efforts in conflicts, past and present, to change societies. This is a must read for all who want to truly understand what it takes to implement a very complex doctrine and theory in real-world conflicts." —General Anthony C. Zinni, USMC (ret.)

"This book is essential reading for scholars of counterinsurgency. Dallas Shaw introduces a new concept into the COIN conversation which has both explanatory value and policy relevance. By tackling the question, why do COIN efforts unravel after U.S. combat formations withdraw, his book provides important insights for security studies scholars as well as policymakers who aim to better prioritize resources when executing a counterinsurgency campaign." —Rebecca Patterson, LCOL US Army (ret.), Associate Director, Security Studies Program, Georgetown University
